23 Week Update

How far along? 23 weeks

23 Week Chalkboard Pregnancy Update

I know, I know it is a lame Badger. 🙁

{I did my best with a badger on the chalkboard:) }

Baby Size: Mango (I am getting my size from the Baby Center App)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 12 pounds (According to my scale).

Maternity clothes: I officially have 4 pairs of maternity pants.  My Married to French sister will be happy to know that one pair is floral pastels (thanks for the tip.  Go check out the blog for more amazing fashion, food, lifestyle tips)! Luckily the Florida weather is heating up so my maxi skirts and dresses are appearing more and more frequently.

Stretch Marks: I don’t have any yet, well except the ones that I had prior to Baby Blue Eyes :).

Sleep: Sleep has been ok…Mr. Blue Eyes and I have been trying to train Baby Blue to stay off the bed.  She has developed quite the system to sleep on her bed until we fall asleep then she jumps up causing frequent awakenings to get her back to her bed.  However, Baby Blue is getting sneakier and sneakier…

23 Week Chalkboard Update

Best Moment of the Week: Having Mr. Blue Eyes feel Baby Blue Eyes kicking around and also seeing my stomach move.

Miss Anything: No I have been doing really well.

Movement: Yes! Feeling kicks and I can even see my stomach move.  Baby Blue Eyes really likes to move when I am laying down.

Food Cravings: Pineapple and a new ice cream sandwich creation using Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies and chocolate ice cream {I know not healthy}.  It has officially become a craving of mine and Mr. Blue Eyes!

Symptoms: I am feeling great, no back pain or really any pains {shhh, don’t tell Mr. Blue Eyes because I like to make him think I need massages}! I am continuing my workouts of Zumba, Barre3, and now adding some Tracy Anderson back into the mix. The workouts are definitely helping with containing the aches and pains.  

Anything make you queasy or sick? No, but I did get carsick the other day not sure if that is related.

Have you started to show yet? I have started to show depending on what I am wearing.  I can still hide it with leggings and loose tops.

Gender predictions? I am feeling girly this week so we shall see.  Mr. Blue Eyes continues to hold strong with his boy prediction.

Labor Signs: No

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding ring on or off? Off because I got panicky that it was going to get stuck.  I am still wearing my band.

Happy or moody most of the time? Good, I didn’t even feel crabby with my Firsties today.  🙂

Looking forward to: Hanging with my favorite girlies on Friday for the Women of Destiny night at church!  Also, the Final Four game this Saturday! On Wisconsin…GO BADGERS!

Have a great week!
